It's not an adventure if you know what you're looking for.


I am the cat
that bats at butterflies it knows aren't there
that chases dogs up trees
that sharpens its declawed paws on cardboard
and yowls at the moon

I am the beach
whose waters are cold
and whose sand is rocky
and whose oysters
have all had their pearls stolen

I am the snake
whose rattle means death
and whose smile means disaster
who gives apples away
for free and with a grin

I am the song
that some hate and some love
but gets stuck in everyone's head all the same
whose tune you can't remember
whose harmonies are bittersweet

I am the girl
that chases dreams she knows aren't real
that skips rocks in her bathtub
that gives her happiness away
whose smile is bittersweet.
